What you can expect
Explore the rich biodiversity and rare species of wildlife in Crocker Range National Park with 3 days of hiking in this spectacular forest reserve. The park consists of both hill and montane forest, remote villages, and spectacular views of some of the most pristine jungle scenery in Borneo.
Day 1 An hourlong drive brings you to Tambunan Road, where you start trekking at 5,000 feet (1,524 m) above sea level. The walk takes you downhill on a 45-degree slope, through native villages, and through a mix of primary and secondary jungle inside the park. After 6 or 7 hours of hiking, it's time to rest at the camp where you spend your first night.
Day 2 On your second day, follow riverbeds and jungle paths on a more level altitude, with several river crossings and a chance to take a dip in the cool refreshing waters of Crocker Range. Enjoy a picnic lunch by the riverbank and spend the evening at your leisure ahead of your overnight accommodation at a homestay with local villagers.
Day 3 Your last day of jungle trekking takes you through a mixture of paddy fields and secondary forest to the 3,395-foot-tall (1,035-m) Kg Togudon. Enjoy a hearty lunch at a local coffee shop in Donggongon before your overland return to Kota Kinabalu.
